It seems that the current politically correct action is to either try to or demand that a Confederate symbol/statue be torn down or removed. Not wishing to pour cold water on the PC rage du jour, I'm offering up the biggest Confederate symbol on the planet--the relief carving of General Robert E. Lee, General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson and Confederate President Jefferson Davis on the north face of Stone Mountain (The world's largest piece of solid granite.), in Georgia!!!!
I had family on both sides during the Civil War. And yes, both sides owned slaves! It is not an institution that I believe in or in any way support. However, members of my family gave their lives for their state, their culture, their families and their homes on both sides. So, it appears that one man's being offended is another man's family history and heritage.
My offer is this: if you are suitably offended, I offer you a free ride up to the top of Stone Mountain on the sky tram. You may bring along the hammer of your choice. I will set up a rope for you to repel over the north face of the mountain. From there, you can hammer away to your heart's content in your best effort to eradicate the carving. By all means, bring friends and like minded whiners. Good luck, you have a big project on your hands! According to facts about the carving, you can park a semi tractor trailer on top of the ear of "Stonewall" Jackson's horse (far right figure of the carving)!! That will give you an idea of the immense size of the carving. If you do not wish to participate in the removal yourself, you really aren't that offended and all you really want is for someone else to do what you are whining about, in an effort to make yourself seem relevant! If you aren't hammerin' away, shut up, pull up your pants and get a job!!!
I'm just sayin' ..............................
For those who have never seen it, I include a YouTube video of the finale of the nightly laser show that is part of and projected onto the face of the mountain. See the carving come to life! If you feel that this is in any way supporting the institution of slavery, please let me know!! To me it shows our history and pure American patriotism!!
